We now offer genetic testing to assist us in choosing the right medication for you. This testing helps predict the likelihood of medications that offer you the best chance at recovery and medication with the least risk of side effects. This is not absolute; we know that you are more than your genes, and there are many other factors in the expression of a disease. Therefore, genetic testing is a good start as it can reduce the need for being on multiple medications and help reduce drug to drug interaction. Many insurance companies cover it. This is very helpful in children starting medication for the first time and in the elderly on multiple medications.
